The Arnold Palmer is one of the great American soft drinks, named, of course, after the professional golf player, Arnold Daniel Palmer. The story goes that after a long day of golf, Mr. Palmer asked a bartender at a country club restaurant to mix lemonade and iced tea, and thus, the ultra-refreshing beverage was born. This cocktail, which comes to us from the folks at Pennsylvania Fine Wine & Good Spirits, is a fun, spiked version of this sporting sipper. Faber vodka (produced by the Bucks County-based distillery, Theobald & Oppenheimer), fresh iced tea, a touch of sugar and a squeeze of lemon combine to recreate this drink with a boozy twist!

- 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
